One of the more popular sectors at Peilstein.

More than 40 routes ranging in grade from easy to 5.12+. Many routes considered classic for their grade at Peilstein which also accounts for the polished rock from the high traffic.

The majority of routes are in the 5.7 to 5.10+ range. Climbing is fun on big features with good protection. Harder routes tend to be slabs
